Growth and strong financial position

Net sales in the first half of the year total SEK 694.8 (684.4) million. Operating profit (EBIT) is SEK 66.3 (71.1) million, which is equivalent to a margin of 9.5 per cent. Liquid assets total SEK 119.8 million.

“HiQ continues to grow and we are now more employees than ever before. We perform a solid result in a seasonally challenging quarter and we keep on winning new assignments and framework agreements. It’s gratifying to note that we have a strong financial position and that we distributed a dividend of SEK 2.60 per share, approximately SEK 137 million, to our shareholders during the second quarter,” says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO of HiQ.

The digital and mobile development is creating endless possibilities and the demand for functioning IT solutions has never been stronger. Vast experience and profound know-how makes HiQ a given partner to companies and organisations for whom IT has become a critical factor. During the second quarter, HiQ for example wins a business critical assignment with Finnair, with the task to help the airline company with development, support and operation of critical systems.

“IT will continue evolving into an even bigger and more natural part of our lives, around the clock and whether you are 3 or 103 years old. With strong finances, creative clients, and skilled employees we look forward to continue being a leading player in the development that is simplifying people’s everyday lives,” Lars Stugemo concludes.
